1. God of War: Ragnarok

God of War: Ragnarok feels like a perfect mix of all the best PlayStation-exclusive games ever made to date. Its combat is tight, responsive, and visceral, just like Bloodborne's. It features a complex and personal narrative filled with twists and turns much like The Last of Us saga. Its big action set pieces are only rivaled by the ones found in the Uncharted series. And it conveys a great different number of emotions just as Shadow of the Colossus does.

Sony Santa Monica's latest title is absolute perfection any way you see it.

God of War Ragnarok features an emotional narrative that brings tears to players' eyes in the first ten minutes of gameplay. However, the story shifts from sad and heartfelt to thrilling and fantastical in a heartbeat. It contains some of the most jaw-dropping moments in the saga as a whole, like when it is revealed that players never really freed Tyr, the god of war in Norse mythology, but instead it was Odin disguised all along. Or when Kratos and Atreus team up to fight two Valkyries before Surtr turns into Ragnarok, the apocalypse itself.

All the way, God of War: Ragnarok is filled with meaningful side activities that will derail you from the main path in multiple instances. It also features a perfect combat system that manages to improve over its predecessor by adding a new (hard-core) weapon, more animations, and a few new attacks. Traversal was also reworked, with more verticality added to it this time around. Finally, the environments are beautiful to look at thanks to the game's realistic graphics and amazing production. All while an exciting and heartfelt soundtrack is constantly playing in the background.

To top it off, Sony recently released a free DLC for God of War: Ragnarok that gives it a great amount of replay value. Is there anything that this video game can't do? No wonder it is, without a doubt, the best PlayStation-exclusive experience to date.
